remember (MMCC)

IMHO, nature and sympathy cards go hand in hand. I have created a "cassy" mixed media sympathy card keeping the "Touch of Nature" theme at Mixed Media Card Challenge in mind.



Mixed media... it's about texture, dimension and techniques... remember?

TEXTURE- although one-layer, I've created depth by applying some watercolor, stamping the grunge BG and then stamping the flowers

DIMENSION - gold embossing paste through a stencil and a Dymo label

TECHNIQUE- took a watercolor brush to the stamped flowers to soften them up a bit

Have you entered the challenge yet? C'mon, get messy with us ;) You've got two more weeks before the challenge closes. 


Supplies for remember:
Paper:  CS Bringmann
Stamps: BG Impression Obsession, flowers Impression Obsession
Ink : Distress
Tools: stencil TCW
Other: watercolors, gold embossing paste, Dymo label maker

maria f. ... you are SO SMART. Subconsciously I know leaves, flowers and such are good picks for sympathy, but I never really put my finger on how they are all nature. I like how you've explained the elements of your card too. That gold embossing is amazing!!

How lovely, Maria ... so often sympathy cards are done in cool (and maybe even 'sad') colours ... I love that you did it in warm, comforting tones! Anita :)
